Back In The Room returns to the School Creative Centre on 27 October with yet another stellar line up for your delectation and delight.
Our headline for the evening – Marek Larwood – has been described as a ‘combination of unhinged and hilarious, indeed an absolute oddball’ and you won’t be disappointed as he brings his hit Edinburgh show TYPECAST (****Guardian) to Rye.
Marek Larwood is best known for being one third of We are Klang, star of Fast & Loose (BBC2) and Sorry I’ve Got No Head (BBC1).
But earlier this year, he committed the cardinal sin of Googling himself – only to discover that the top search t e rm wa s “Marek Larwo o d Re – tarded”. This left him wit h two choices – kill himself or write a show about it. Since playing a b a c k w a r d s sidekick in We Are Klang , Marek has been inundated with cast ings for backwards butlers, backwards undertakers and backwards aliens. But underneath the exterior of a man willing to suck from Greg Davies’ under-washed nipples, Marek believes there is a swan trying to get out. In Typecast he sets out to prove that he is one of the greatest actors, stand-ups and panel show members of all time. But once you’re typecast, it can be pretty hard to escape and what follows is an hour of truly off-the-wall, anarchic comedy.
As an award-winning solo stand-up, Marek has made a number of television appearances in shows including Felix and Murdo (Channel 4), Function Room (Channel 4), Extras (BBC 2), Sorry, I’ve Got No Head (BBC 1), Music Hall Meltdown (BBC Four), Hyperdrive (BBC 2), Rush Hour (BBC 3), Laura Ben & Him (ITV 2) and the feature film Magicians.
And this month joining our fabulous hosts Lamp & Pil are singer Helen Sharpe, the incomparable Liz Finch and comedy double act Croft and Pearce – just think French and Saunders meets Peep Show!
